Acting president also stressed that on Tuesday there were found bodies of “two brutally tortured individuals” near Sloviansk of Donetsk region, one of whom resembles kidnapped deputy of Horlivka town council and member of Batkivschyna party, Volodymyr Rybak.

“Terrorists, who in fact took hostages the whole Donetsk region, overstepped the limits when started to torture and kill patriots of Ukraine. They dared to toss a challenge not just to our country, but to the whole world as well, when they demonstratively outraged upon the decisions, which have bee adopted in Geneva. These crimes are committed under the complete favor and with the connivance of the Russian Federation,” he said.
